(Newser) – An ad executive on a first date fell to her death when the railing on a 17th-floor balcony in midtown Manhattan collapsed, reports NBC New York. Police say 35-year-old Jennifer Rosoff went out for a smoke on her apartment's balcony just after midnight today and disregarded her date's advice not to sit on the railing, reports CBS New York. It quickly gave way, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have ruled out foul play and cleared her suitor. “You’ve got about two feet or less,” says a neighbor of the balcony. "It’s for standing and smoking and looking at the moon or whatever.”
